Greetings unto the West,

Our good knight marshal, Lord Jasper, posted the following (see 
below) letter to the Bonwicke list. It is his hope, and ours, to 
recapture some of the grandeur of the days of old when fighter 
practices in Bonwicke were like small events. This is not a 
tournament, just what we hope will become normal practices in 
Bonwicke. We would welcome any and all that wish to travel here and 
join us in this endeavor.

This is, of course, dependent on the weather. I am currently looking 
out my tower window and witnessing the Barony covered in a blanket of 
white. If Western weather follows its normal course, this will all be 
gone by Sunday and the weather will be warm. If this is not the case, 
if there is snow on the ground or the winds are biting, then we will 
postpone this venture until next week.

We look forward to seeing you,

This coming Sunday Feb. 15th will mark the first of hopefully many 
new and improved gatherings for Bonwicke at our Sunday practice site. 
Each and every one of the populace is encouraged to bring any 
pavilions, friends, Arts and Sciences projects, heraldric banners and 
period games to the park this Sunday beginning at 2pm. Fighters both 
heavy and light are encouraged to bring their armor and weapons to 
grace the fields of the site which is sure to be surrounded by 
pagentry and lovely ladies for which to fight for. I challenge each 
and every current populace member of Bonwick to bring a friend to 
this gathering on Sunday. Drummers bring your drums, belly dancers 
bring your... bellies! This is not going to be your average run of 
the mill fighter practice. There will be fighting for sure but I also 
expect to see lots of color and costuming as well as period 
activities. The magic of the game here at home needs a jump start and 
this is it! I am hoping to bring back the Sundays from the days of 
old, when Sunday was not just for fighters but was for everyone. I 
will be onsite at 1:30 to set up the Baronial Pavilion any help would 
be appreciated. I hope to see everyone there.

Lord Jasper Codrington
Baronial Knight Marshal

PS: I will be holding the field against all challengers.
